E-Rickshaw is an electric powered, three wheeled vehicle primarily utilized for commercial purposes to transport passengers and goods.
95% of this market is dominated by tubular lead acid batteries which are charged by 15A chargers. The batteries come with a 12-month warranty and the chargers with a 1-year warranty.
These batteries have the following characteristics:
- Charging voltage is set to 64v which is harmful to the battery. This leads to overcharging which is not good for the battery
- Overcharging constantly leads to sulphation which results to battery degradation and a deterioration in performance
- This leads to frequent replacements of the batteries
